His comment on the US/China rivalry: It is just about being on top the list and about nothing else. Resch expects an exaflop/s supercomputer will have about 100 million cores. How to program this is an unsolved problem.
Resch also elaborates on the collaboration with Porsche. One hour of using the supercomputer for simulation costs about 7.000 Euro. About 10% of this is for energy.
